Carton releasing black pepper saison 'Comma'

Written by 

It doesn't take a black pepper saison to get Augie Carton talking about beer.

However, Carton Brewing’s saison, Comma, its newest release, is the beer that’s fresh on the mind of the eponymously named brewery’s co-owner.
Nope, talking about beer is just something Augie is driven to do, with equal parts fervor and cerebralness.

Throw in some practicality, too.

“For anything as subjective as flavor,” he says, “the way to get better is by gathering inputs from various perspectives and trying to reconcile them to your experience. That is done through conversation.”

That’s why on Sundays during brewery tour hours you’ll usually find Augie in a discussion circle somewhere near the brewhouse area. Or tasting pilot batch beers in the Carton pipeline.

If you go, be ready to talk flavor, and not just that of latest releases but about what makes a beer great. Period.
